Knowledge of server virtualisation (particularly Hyper-V) would be advantageous!
VMware vSphere is better
Obnoxiously expensive. Also, ARK as a whole doesn't use it - they use Hyper-V (hence my comment).
The Secondary school is not even open for students, the first Year 7 start in September.
It's a new building with a substantial amount of IT infrastructure going in. The NM post covers the Primary and the Secondary.
Edit: Sorry reading your profile I see that you do.
IT Infrastructure Manager

What is the relation of the NM to the Overall ARK Infrastructure? How does the infrastructure in each school function, do they have their own domain, own servers etc or is that hosted from your data centre? How does Line management from the School back into the ARK Hierarchy work?
Thanks for answering any questions.
The academy will have its own domain and infrastructure (which is a part of the wider ARK Schools Active Directory forest) with server infrastructure on-site. It's currently hosted at our datacentre, but once the new building is in place (September) a pile of physical server kit will be installed on-site.
ARK has a central IT team that provides additional second and third line technical support, MIS support, software development and project management resource.
Can someone say how much "Scale 10 Point 35 – 42" equates to please
When I was reading the job spec for it, looks more like a Senior Techie role, not a NM...............how much control do the Network Managers have at the Ark Schools?
I don't know the organisation but I know the area (used to have a centre just round the corner). You're walking distance from Wembley stadium so when the development in that area is complete it will be a really good place to work (it's not bad now). Tube station is close and there are reasonably good roads. If you want open space, Fryent country park (Fryent Country Park) and Brent Reservoir (Welsh Harp Reservoir - much nicer than the name suggests!) are close by and if you want a supermarket then Asda is just a short walk away.

The title of the post says £39k?
